Talk like a pirate Geocoin

AAARRGH!

International Talk Like a Pirate Day is celebrated annually on September 19th. It is a day where speaking pirate is not only acceptable, but encouraged. This detailed coin commemorates this special day and will be available for a limited time only.

This coin was designed by Christian A. Mackey and measures 5 cm in. in diameter.

What is the meaning behind this design? Glad you asked...

The pirate skull side...

  • The skull with mouth open of course is the pirate talking, but the patch on the right eye is courtesy of "One-eyed Willie" from the Goonies movie.
  • The symbol on the patch is the crucifix found stamped on dozens of different "doubloon" coins during the reign of the pirate age.
  • In latin on the left from bottom to top is "Talk Like (a) Pirate" and on the right is 9/19/2013 for this year.
  • 1995 is the infamous year upon which the holiday began after an injury during a raquetball game.
  • The Spear/Hourglass/Heart symbols were used by a bunch of the most notorious pirates in history and each had various meanings. Most commonly the spear was a symbol of imminent attack, the hourglass was a warning to enemy ships to not try to stall for time, and the heart was a symbol of warning that no quarter would be given and all put to death if surrender was not complete and immediate.
  • The S.-B. within the speaking pirate skull is a tribute to Summers and Baur who began to promote the idea for a holiday.
  • The odd raised elipses on the edge of the coin were a common design element in all the coins regardless of origin in that particular era.


The Crest side...

  • Cache on crown - Cache is King
  • The pillars are the infamous Pillars of Hercules depicted on coinage of the era representing the old world and the new.
  • Plus Vltra - latin inscription for Further Beyond and denoted new discoveries in a newly discovered hemisphere of the world.
  • The floating crown was a symbol of oversight of the new colonies from the government back home.
  • The 8 and R on the pillars indicates 8 Reales and what led to the coins being called "Pieces of Eight" where coins would be commonly cut into 8 equal pieces like a pizza during trades.
  • Signal and Yelling man are self explanatory :)
  • Spreading laurel in the background is symbol of victory and growth in the new world.
  • The fleur de lis (lilly flower) was a common european symbol of royalty.
  • The Latin on left - "Explore the World" and "Share the Experience" from the Groundspeak homepage.
  • The S at the bottom is commonly the City of Origin for the coin and this case would be Seattle.
  • The Dahlia is the official symbol of Seattle, The City of Flowers.
  • The shield center crest is the GPS signal lightning bolts (normally the three crosses of the holy trinity on a doubloon).

Knowledge Base

  • How do I get an activeringscode?

    With each travelbug, travel tag, geocoin of other trackable, you need an activeringscode to activate your trackable at Geocaching.com.
    Sometimes, the code is already added, e.g. with most travelbugs. It is then available at the paper card which is included with the product.
    With the other trackables, you need to request the activastioncode at our website via the following link:
    Request activeringscode.

  • Can I define my own trackingcode?

    Sorry, no that is not possible.

  • Can I use my own existing tracking code?

    You can use your own code on certain products.
    This must be a Geocaching.com trackable code (eg from another travelbug or trackable), so no self-invented code.
    With those products you can see a label with a mark that you can use your own code.
    In the product there is a separate tab with a field where you can enter the code. Make sure you save this 

  • I want to use my own Trackable code for a sticker or decall?

    That is possible. You can enter your own code for various stickers, which we then use for the sticker.
    This code must be an existing trackable code from geocaching.com (eg from an earlier travelbug).
    You can enter this in the 'Own input (...)' tab that you see to the right of the product information.
    After entering the code, briefly press 'save' so that the code is stored with the product and then put it in your shopping cart.
     

  • Do I need to provide my own travelbug/trackable code?

    No, with most trackables, a code is already placed on the product in the factory (travel bugs, geocoins, travel tags, etc). For some products (eg the personal tag or stickers) you can specify a code that you already have from another Geocaching product. Or if you want a sticker made with an existing code.

    If you do not have that code, no problem, we will provide a code.
